Saw this on dsog and thought I'd share it. The remastered versions of the first two and infinite are free on epic. Great games loved them when I played, I especially like Infinite, amazing art and setting and for it's time it had amazing graphics imo, still does. Only thing I didn't like was in infinite, either one of the dlc or the main story, you have to take part in a torture session which breaks the fourth wall in a very disturbing way. A similar thing happens in GTAV if you recall. I mean yes most gaming is just fighting/killing but those two examples are much more intimate, first person and grisly. At least in most games you're fighting with those who who can and do fight back and attack out of nefarious motives as per the story. Anyways links.

absolutely recommend ANYone to play through the series! took me ages to finally get around to beat the first installment, but the next two were a breeze (life got in the way haha). absolutely brilliant story, character development, gameplay mechanics and indeed the graphics were very well thought through and atmospheric. cant wait for bioshock 4 to drop!

Picked this up.  These games have been on my to-play list forever and I only have the first one on Steam.  Hope to get around to it soon…  There’s just too many games and not enough time.

I haven't seen much new stuff I'm interested in lately it's kind of a drought which is fine, of course I have not gone through old stuff I have not played yet though. Was looking at Soda Crisis as a short little simple game may give it a shot(pun intended lol).  Still just fine COH1 skirmish, kind of like my grandma used to play solitaire while watching tv lol
